My yearly visit to a beautiful Mediterranean style garden in the neighborhood. I never get tired of seeing it.
This plant is commonly called Purple Potato Vine around here, though it's more of an arching shrub--Solanum...something--loaded with flowers in November.
Sedum 'Coppertone' there at the base of the wall.
Duranta in the shade of Schinus molles
Crassula 'Campfire', an Iris, 'Fred Ives' Graptoveria, against a backdrop of variegated Duranta erecta (I think).
Love that lantern...
I could not figure out what this plant was...Agave colimana...or even a Hesperaloe? I love the filaments.
Aeonium on the right, Oscularia deltoides in the bust/pot.
A mature Pomegranate tree, probably 'Wonderful', at least thirty years old, if not older. The leaves are turning gold and preparing to drop, but slowly, slowly.
Out of focus Tagetes lemoni in the foreground, dark, leathery-leafed Toyon in the middle, Schinus molle behind the Toyon, and the dessicated hills beyond.
Agave attenuata is as common in Southern California as Rosa 'Iceberg', and as indispensable.
Copper Spoons, Kalanchoe orgyalis. Growing in dappled shade, this particular plant is more purple than coppery.
A creature has been at the last remaining Pomegranates.
